Meteor run with -p parameter fails


I’m usually doing all my development using an online IDE ( on a single linux VPS (ubuntu 14.04).

I now want to run on a port different to 3000, so that I can run more than one instance. But everytime I start meteor with -p and a port number other than 3000, it stops at the ‘starting your app’ status.

Nothing else is listening at that port and no other meteor instance was runnig at the time, though the purpose is to use a somewhat oversized development VPS for 2 people to work on projects concurrently.


This is tracked here.

… This will be fixed in a future stable release of Meteor but is available in beta right now (specifically, 1.4.2-beta.7)…
